Broadwayonstage.com is pleased to offer the Holiday Comedy by Dennis Wickline, THE NUTCRACKER'S NUTS, for production. THE NUTCRACKER'S NUTS is the most popular show ever presented at Broadway Onstage Live Theatre and ran 10 seasons in a row from 2001 to 2010. There have been many other productions by other groups since then including the Midland, Michigan Center for the Performing Arts, in Canada, Kentucky, Minnesota, New York and other locations throughout the United States.
THE NUTCRACKER'S NUTS takes place in the Northern Lower Penninsula of Michigan. Simon's Rest is a retirement community in Frankfort, Michigan. Every Christmas the residents perform their traditional, boring, and harder and harder to produce version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Every Christmas, that is, except this one. Minnie Winchester, an elderly piano teacher, suggests that the residents do something new, something like THE NUTCRACKER. Everyone agrees that it would be wonderful to try something new and THE NUTCRACKER is accepted immediately. Tickets are quickly sold out. Just as rehearsals begin, however, the retirees discover one important and overlooked detail, THE NUTCRACKER is a ballet, and Minnie Winchester, a rather rotund lady who always wanted to play Clara, the lead, doesn't know how to dance.
Royalty rate is $75 per performance.
